Product Description

Product Description

Amazon #1 Best Seller in Historical Romance and Regency Romances
 
The spirited Catherine Malboeuf has just arrived in England to reclaim her ancestral home, Walsley Manor, and a valuable missing heirloom. Nicholas Adair, the attractive and frustratingly inflexible Duke of Boulstridge, however, is quite unwilling to sell the estate back to Catherine. Unless, of course, she accepts a small wager...
 
Nick will sell Walsley Manor if--and only if--Catherine secures an offer of marriage from an eligible member of the ton before the end of the London season.
 
Of course, Nick is certain he'll win. After all, no proper gentleman would ever marry a woman who conceals a cutlass in her skirts. Yet something about Catherine's unconventional disposition seems to ignite a need deep inside him. A need that won't just cost him the wager, but the very heart he swore to never give away...

In the last few months, I lost a bit of my addiction to regency romance novels, the ones I read felt flat, unoriginal or I simply couldn't muster the energy to read the book from front to cover. This gem restored my faith! It was just fantastic! It was engaging, the characters felt real and it was so funny!

This was a great read, I loved it. I wasn't ready for it to end where it did, I could've read a few more chapters about the couple, but it ended in a cute spot. This book has everything I love in a good book. Drama, Mystery, and my favorite, historical romance! Can't go wrong with that! I was a little disappointed that the biggest mystery of the book was not resolved, but with the way it ended, it's kind of open for a sequel, if that's what the author wants to do. The chemistry between the characters is great. This book was pretty fast paced and really hard to put down. I did fall asleep reading at one point, but that was just me needing a power nap. As soon as I woke up, I started reading again right away.

HASH(0xa08554f8) out of 5 stars really good! Dec 8 2014
By mandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I don't normally read historical novels but thought this one sounded really interesting. It did not disappoint. This was so much more than just a historical romance. There were interesting, well thought out characters, mystery and suspense. Also, I really enjoyed the romance - I felt it was a slow build up and really developed the connection between these characters. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to reading more by this author!

HASH(0xa085554c) out of 5 stars How to Beguile a Duke Dec 8 2014
By celticmaggie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love to read books that start out with the gentleman saying "I will never marry!" I liked Ally' s choice of characters. Catherine is on her own to try to solve a family mystery and for a Season in London. Nicholas, Duke of Boulstridge, has purchased her mother's family sear until a cousin inherited. It is great to see the two of them go against each other. Spoiler here. But then she is having men court her and Nicholas gets jealous. Somewhere in this chaos is someone willing to kill her for the prize she is hunting. I would recommend this story to anyone. Give this book a chance. It is fun. I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

HASH(0xa0855984) out of 5 stars http://sinfoniadoslivros.blogspot.pt/2014/11/review-how-to-beguile-duke-ally.html Dec 8 2014
By Vera Neves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the first book where the review will be published first in English and then in Portuguese. This is because the ebook was sent to me for reading and subsequent publication of opinion directly by Entangled, since the book will be released by the 8th of December.

Let's talk about the book? Let's go!
First of all, I have to say that "I liked it a lot" is an understatement. The characters, the plot, locations, descriptions and the fact that it is a period of romance only helped that I liked it so much. While I was reading, I was discovering many similarities with another writer that I love: Julia Quinn. I do not know if I'm right or not, but what is certain is that the kind of writing that this author, Ally, adopted grabbed me from the first sentence in the Prologue.
The characters? They are funny, smart, sensitive and very intense. Catherine is the main character as well as the Duke of Boulstridge, Nick. These are the two that make up the romantic couple and they are the main reason that I have enjoyed this *delicious*story so much. Catherine has English origins and since childhood always dreamed of returning to London and meet Wasley Mannor, the mansion that once belonged to her mother’s family. However, the walls of Wasley Mannor hide a treasure - A tiara that was given to her maternal great-grandmother. The point is that no one knows where it was hidden. However, Wasley Mannor no longer belongs to the family of his mother, but to Nick, the taciturn and mysterious Duke of Boulstridge. As usual, he is an attractive and charismatic man and did not take long until Catherine realized that she felt something for him, even if only by the butterflies she felt every time she saw him.
Between an invasion of his library made by Catherine on the first day she arrived to England and the appearance of a bet between them, a lot will happen. Abduction attempts, robberies and assaults will be waiting for Catherine. The tiara she so demands, is also sought after by someone else who can until the end remain in the dark.
I loved the climate of seduction always present at each meeting the two of them had, although they do not could withstand at first, even more because Catherine was the daughter of a supposed pirate.
The successive balls where Catherine went and danced with the Duke? OMG! It must be every woman’s dream. I love balls, the court scenarios and that surroundings and traditions of the ducal times.
I could be here all day talking about the history and characters and everything else that is part of this book, but would unravel too much and I do not want to be accused of spoiler! :D

When the book comes out to the market and you have the opportunity to acquire it, do not hesitate! You will have a very pleasant surprise, as I also had!

HASH(0xa0855d44) out of 5 stars Historical romance, bit of a mystery and great Character's! Dec 31 2014
By Linda Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Five star historical romance deals up a bold heroine, a sometimes stuffed shirt of a hero, a treasure hunt and a villain or two along the way, so no sleeping through this one, " How to Beguile the Duke" was a hard to put down read .

Our Heroine :

Catherine Malboeuf , raised in The Bahamas and New Orleans , by her English mother and French ( pirate ) really shipping magnet of a father, is not your classic wilting English Rose, she can wield a sword and knife as well as any pirate, has a quick mind and a determination to find find her Grandmohters hidden tiara in her mothers Ancesterlal home of Walsley Manor.

Our Hero:

Nicholas Adair, The Duke of Boulstridge the current owner of Walsley Manor raised by his father who did nothing but bring shame to his household and his mother has pledge never to marry, never to carry on the family has already named his cousin his heir to the dukedom and installed him in at the family estate, not like Nick could face living there.

Catherine has come back to England to try and buy back her mothers ancestral home so she can seek out her grandmothers journal and the hidden tiara but Nicholas Adair will not even see her to discuss a purchase , so what is a determined women to do, of course climb through the library window and search for it without his knowledge.
Imagine Nicky's surprise to observe a Shapley young women brazenly climb through his library window, come in make herself comfortable by removing her shoes. And then start rifling through his very organized library shelves.
Nicky's surprise probably about equal to Catherine's of being discovered , but she rebound quickly and begins her first foray into trying to convince him to sell Walsley Manor to her.
Nick finds himself a bit taken with Catherine but will not sell to her , but she is persistent so Nick finds himself amused with it and suddenly offering a bet, if she can earn a proposal from a propper member of the ton during the season. He will sell to her, really , Nick figures he is in no danger of loosing, she just is not socially acceptable enough to garner a proposal from the ton, given her brashness and her family backround .
Catherine sets about her extra project , but finds it difficult to attract the attention of the proper gentlemen of course Nick is runnin in the same circles and being a gentleman does dem to dance with her of course it is for the purpose of finding out how she is coming on the clues in her grandmothers journal and finding the tiara; oops did I forget to tell that Nick had the journal all along.

These two get closer during each encounter and Nick changes , he is warmer, friendlier and to his own chagrin suddenly not looking at marriage as the enemy he did before, the deeper these two get into looking for the tiara the more dangerous it becomes, missing items from Catherine's room, attempt at her abduction drive Nick into a protective mode.
Well this is a historical romance I do not need to tell you were this is all leading , besides ; too many spoilers ruin a great read, which this book is, I am looking foward to many more wonderful books in the future from Ms Broadfeild.

Arc was graciously provided By Entagled publishing via Netgalley for a. Honest review!

HASH(0xa0855e28) out of 5 stars Delight to read Dec 8 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
How to Beguile a Duke was a delight to read. The characters were vivid, lovable and the storyline, with a hint of mystery and danger, held my attention until the very last page. Catherine is my kind of heroine: daring, funny, and up to taking on the handsome, proper Duke of Boulstridge. The chemistry between Catherine and Nick was instantaneous and their dynamic exchanges often had me laughing out loud. This is my first time reading Ally Broadfield, and I’m looking forward to her other novels.
